    Сast and Crew

    Production

    GK Films acquired the screen rights to The Invention of Hugo Cabret shortly after the book was published in 2007. Initially, Chris Wedge was signed in to direct the adaptation and John Logan was contracted to write the screenplay. The film was initially titled Hugo Cabret. Several actors were hired, including Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Asa Butterfield, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Helen McCrory. Jude Law, Ray Winstone, Christopher Lee, Frances de la Tour, and Richard Griffiths later joined the project. Hugo was originally budgeted at $100 million, but ran over with a final budget between $156 million and $170 million. In February 2012, Graham King summed up his experience of producing Hugo: "Let's just say that it hasn't been an easy few months for me—there's been a lot of Ambien involved".

    The film collected many technical awards and deservedly so. The scenery, sound, and camera work are simply top notch. The setting of the film makes you fall in love with it immediately. The fairy tale is spoiled by a complex multi-act script that is very clumsily adapted and the main character with the facial expressions of an automaton! Translated to English

    Not a bad, naive children’s fairy tale. Interesting, unusual, beautiful, but nothing more. Butterfield wasn’t convinced, why did he think that his father used this thing to leave a message if he was just fixing it? Kingsley is gorgeous, Moretz is a typical 5 point adventurer. An unusual genre for Scorsese. Translated to English

    A wonderful film with a real declaration of love for those who created the wonderful world of cinema. In the second half, tears never left my eyes when the guys discovered it for themselves, and who better to talk about cinema than Scorsese and Georges Méliès. 9/10 Translated to English

    Watched

    A wonderful film in which the atmosphere of a family Christmas fairy tale is combined with the beauty of the picture and masterful direction. But the meaning of the tape is much deeper. This is a tribute to the cinematographer and special effects artist Georges Méliès. There was also room for time. I recommend seeing it Translated to English
